Jarun Bridge is a new landmark that brings the city of Zagreb closer to the river Sava and places it in the company of European capitals. Its design reflects the place and the time of its origin. Its longitudinal arrangement was chosen according to the principles of design, effectiveness and optimal integration into the surrounding area. The river Sava was bridged over with one span and thus a bridge was created that makes evident the current global potential of Croatian builders. A bridge with arches is an archetypal bridge that, in a type with an arch above the roadway, presents the optimal solution for the flat area around it. On one hand this solution is not new, as there are no new forms in bridge construction these days, but on the other hand this design is original. The reason behind choosing an arch as the main construction and design element is primarily in the two equivalent banks that it connects. The symmetry of the arch always refers to the balance between the two banks, and in this case they are equally important as opposed to some other locations where that is not the case. The new approach to designing the arch is apparent in the different design of the cross-section of all girders and construction elements.
